After taking a linebacker with the fifth overall pick, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers must turn their attention to getting help with their pass rush on day-two.
With the fifth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers took linebacker Devin White. Also on the board was Kentucky pass rusher Josh Allen, who would have been a great help to the Buccaneers’ attack against opposing quarterbacks.
Even after the addition of former Denver Broncos pass rusher Shaquil Barrett during free agency, the Buccaneers are in desperate need of some help off the edge. Behind Barrett sits only Noah Spence and Carl Nassib. While Nassib looked promising in 2018, he has never played off the edge before and may have a bit of a learning curve. Spence, on the other hand, is on his last leg in Tampa Bay and may not make the 2019 roster.
Unfortunately for the Buccaneers, all of the elite defensive talent at edge rusher flew off the board, leaving only scraps to choose from. Should the Buccaneers decide to select a pass rusher on day-two of the NFL Draft, here are three options to consider with both the 39th and 70th overall picks in the draft.
